Kylix XY: Rudy Project’s Smart Solution for Small Faces

(Denver, CO) – Rudy Project once again answers the needs of athletes across the spectrum with the Kylix XY, a new sport sunglass model specifically engineered for smaller faces.  The Kylix XY, a close cousin to Rudy Project’s best-selling Rydon model, utilizes durable yet lightweight materials, cutting-edge lens technology and Italian-inspired design to offer an ideal optical solution for athletes seeking smaller frames but not willing to skimp on performance and style.

“Throughout my career in the eyewear industry, I have witnessed the ever present need for manufacturers to produce real solutions for people needing smaller frames in order to experience the best fit possible,” attested Paul Craig, President and Co-Founder of Rudy Project North America.  “Small-sized performance optics can be a challenge to produce, but more than once Rudy Project has met that challenge head-on.  With the Kylix XY, we’ve once again pushed the envelope on small-faced sporting eyewear designs so that this group of athletes no longer need struggle with imperfect fit.”  Craig continued, “A large number of individuals waste their money on sunglasses which are simply not sized appropriately for their faces, leading to reduced performance, compromised comfort and utter frustration.  I’m proud that Rudy Project offers technologically advanced solutions to help these athletes take their game to the next level with the performance eyewear they deserve!”

Constructed with Kynetium™, a space-age alloy consisting of magnesium and titanium, the Kylix XY’s frame embodies both the strength and lightweight properties of its component metals.  What definitively sets the Kylix XY apart from many other sunglasses on the market is its strategic design targeted for those with smaller faces; i.e. women, children and small-framed men.  This is an often-ignored segment of the sports eyewear market which Rudy Project is proud to service as one of the world’s leading eyewear design and manufacturing pioneers.  Staying true to their foundation as the industry leader in RX sports solutions, the Kylix XY is also fully compatible with Rudy Project’s perfected sight correction technology, ImpactRX™ FreeForm TEK™.  Proven to increase the wearer’s peripheral vision by up to 20%, this technology uses groundbreaking EyePoint™ ocular mapping and digital backside surfacing technologies for the best solution in RX sports.

“We’ve built on the proven success of our number-one selling design, the Rydon, but modified the fit specifically for folks with smaller heads,” explained Craig. “Those with narrow faces will love the Kylix XY because it has the same sporty look and technologically advanced attributes of the super-popular Rydon, but in a sleek, trimmed down size.”

The Kylix XY also incorporates the custom-fit features which have made Rudy Project famous in the sunglass market: the pliable 360° adjustable temple tips and the ErgoIV™ fully amendable nosepiece, both made of hypoallergenic Megol.  It offers a slightly wider lens than its predecessor, the Kylix, thus providing enhanced peripheral vision and a more universally appealing aesthetic. Additionally, the Kylix XY features Rudy Project’s gimmick-free QuickChange™ interchangeable lens technology.  The result is a flexible, durable sunglass frame with custom versatility and precision lens RX-ability.

The Kylix XY is available in frame colors Frozen Brown, Frozen Ash, Carbon and Silver and can be paired with an assortment of Rudy Project’s ImpactX™, Polar3FX™ and RP Optics™ lenses.  The Kylix XY is also offered in both of Rudy Project’s promotional packages, the Gear Deal and the Combo Deal, which provide an incredible selection of high quality gear at a greatly reduced cost.
